The Juvenile Unit is responsible for the investigation of serious juvenile delinquency & youth crimes. Gangs, graffiti, truancy, youth violence, drug use and certain crimes are real problems for today’s teens. The police department along with other agencies look to pre-trial diversion, early juvenile crime intervention, police/probation counseling, after school programs and police station community service as important services for our teens.

For more information regarding Massachusetts law regarding juveniles please see the Massachusetts Court System website here.
